Anyone addicted to the snooze button will view this alarm clock design as one of Satan's instruments from Hell.

The Ramos Alarm Clock, from Paul Sammut, is fiendishly designed so that the slumbering victim has to physically leave bed and enter a PIN code into a wireless panel to silence the buzzer.

Clearly aimed at heavy sleepers with mashochistic tendencies, the clock's manufacturers suggest placing the PIN code panel as far away as possible, such as another room.

My co-worker needs this. She is always late for work.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

That would be going out the window at 5:30am when I can't remember the pin-code :)

It wouldn't get off so easy at my place.  I would wake up by meticulously destroying the thing while using words that my neighbors might not approve of :w00t:

This is stupid....I have an app on my Android phone where I have to solve math problems before I can turn my alarm clock off - I have had this for months!

When I was younger I used to keep my alarm clock on the other side of the room and that seemed to work for me.

Now that I'm older I always seem to wake up before the damn thing goes off anyway.

Reminds me of the Baseball Alarm clock, an alarm clock built into a baseball.  When it went off, you would throw it against a wall.  15 minutes later, it would start again, this time louder, and you had to get up and look for wherever it rolled under to turn it off.

People who love a late lie in would only end up getting pissed with that new alarm clock and bringing a hammer to it. I know I probably would. :D

Wouldn't it be simpler (and cheaper) to make (or buy, if they already exist) an alarm clock without a snooze button?

I did almost the same - had it in the hallway outside my bedroom (always slept with the door open anyways).  It worked a charm, I should do it again - but my innards rebel at the notion "noooooooo ".

Yes drunkposting can lead to some interesting brain farts online I noticed :w00t: .

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."
